If Brandon was the team's best player, which I don't think he is, you'd think he would be able to make the switch back to his original position, that he wants to play, like his idol Larkin did. What is he, some kind of china doll? He sure looks like our best infielder to me, why isn't he playing SS and Gonzalez being shipped out before he's healthy enough for his bat to return to it's sub .700 OPS form? Keppinger's defense would be a lot better at 2B than it would at SS also. I'd love to hear what the Reds scouts would have to say about Phillips ability to move back to SS.
